CUNY is holding a day-long membership summit — “Membership Strategies for Media: Beyond Pledges and Paywalls” — on Wednesday at its Tow-Knight Center for Digital Journalism in New York. The full program, led by Jeff Jarvis, includes panels with Melody Kramer, who recently wrote about expanding membership models as a Knight Visiting Nieman Fellow; Josh Stearns of the Local News Lab; Amanda Michel of The Guardian; and many others.

If you aren’t attending in person, you can follow along online.

Here’s the event livestream.

An open, collaborative public notebook with detailed write-ups of the panels is here. Melody Kramer also provided notes for her panel, here.

And you can follow #membership on Twitter, though there are many non-journalism related tweets in the mix (maybe they should have chosen a less inclusive hashtag).
